The hotel room (platinum suite) was large and there was good space to 5 people. It was not light enough in the rooms, only small night lamp in both bedrooms and ceiling light in the living room (there was very high ceilings, so the ceiling light was worthless). Best lightning was at the toilet and bath room. It was nice to spend time in the evenings at large terrace. We didn´t use the jacuzzi at all, it looked like so "old-fashioned" and not so clean. Beds were very hard in the beginning but it was ok after few days. The housekeepers did they work very well, we had clean apartment all the time. There was enough shampoo, hair conditioner and showergel in the bath room. Slippers were included too. The beach was very nice and shallow. We like´d it. There was several restaurants and small shops on the beach. We went without shoes from our hotel to the beach; very nice to walk on the warm sand in the evenings. Our teens were excited about hundreds of crabs and seashells on the beach. We used tuk tuk to saladan and it was 50 bath/person, but we got often the ride 150baht/5persons -> just try to get lower and lower prize and you get it! Saladan was very nice place; much bigger than we expected. It looks like a very small village in the travel guides and pictures in the internet. We were surprised very positively. Various of restaurants to choose and inexpensive, delicious food. We didn´t eat in our hotel except breakfast and it was very good and lot´s of everything to choose. We got many kilos during our 2 weeks holiday! Some meals were too spicy, remember say "mae pet" => not so spicy :) We ate for 80-100baht/meal (it was often Pad Thai=very good rice food with chicken, sea food or meat and vegetables). The beverages was from 30baht = soft drinks, thai beer from 60-70 baht in the restaurant. We had 2 wonderful boat trips to snorkeling, I recommend Opal Travels; very nice and safe with them. Their trips are available to buy from another side of the road opposite the hotel and the small shop. If you buy the boat/island trip from local people, you get it for half prize compared to your travel agency. National Park is nice place to go and you can eat on the way there -> Same same but different -restaurant ; very good food and beautiful place on the beach. Prepare to wait for the table...they request you to beach bar to wait and drink while the table is released. We were there twice and we had to wait almost one hour. It´s worth it:) There were many many fine place at Koh lanta, just ask more..
